It’s been more than three weeks since Gordon Hayward suffered his gruesome injury on opening night in Cleveland.
On Friday, he opened up about the injury for the first time and the effect that it’s had on him both physically and emotionally.
He discussed his initial thoughts when he looked down at his mangled foot for the first time and how he’s tried to block that image from his brain.
Things got emotional when Hayward was asked to look at the situation through his parents eyes, who were in attendance when the injury occurred. As a parent himself, he immediately viewed it from their perspective and broke down into tears.
